Baseball Season is Around the Corner

Since the miraculous summer of 1982 when we got cable TV I have been a Cubs fan. Thank God for WGN. My love has waxed and waned over the years, but I still keep an eye on where they are in the standings and try to get to a game once every few years.

This post at is an instant classic.

The Cubs are so old they actually predate the time when every player wore a number. No Cub wore a number on his jersey until 1932, nearly a quarter century after the Cubs last won a World Series. Oh great, another thing to add to the list of things invented after the last World Championship (radio, TV, fire, the wheel, numbers on jerseys, herpes…)

You know what would be cool? It would be cool if somebody would write a book about all of the Cubs who wore different numbers. I’d pay at least $15 for that.

The rest is here.
